Crassula argentea, native to South Africa, is an arborescent shrub to 6' in height or more. Forms branching, thick elephantine trunk topped with a canopy of shiny green ovate leaves. Dense floral masses of white star-shaped flowers in winter months. The jade plant is a popular subject for bonsai training due to the inherent gnarly character of the thickened trunk and the ease with which it can be pruned and trained. An excellent plant for brightly lit areas in the house, patio and in more temperate climes can be planted in the garden or landscape. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Bright light to full sun. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost. Most well known of the crassulaceae family and maybe easiest go grow. They are winter growers and intolerant of frost. Offer light water in summer. If outdoors, fall through winter, water once a month or allow the rain to water your plants. Easily propogated by stem cuttings. Cutting tops make new plants and parent plants fuller.
